Great leaders motivate and inspire others. They build connection, trust, and respect quickly. They bridge differences, work through conflict, and create alignment. They are fully present, inclusive, attuned, thoughtful, influential, and authentically themselves.
THE COMPETENCIES OF INDIVIDUAL LEADERSHIP
We know that leadership styles vary widely, yet studies consistently show the vast majority of effective leaders are self aware, well regulated, intrinsically motivated, empathic, and socially adept. Through our history of success with hundreds of executives, and the substantial research that informs our work, we know these leadership competencies can be conveyed and learned.
THE COMPETENCIES OF HIGH PERFORMING LEADERSHIP TEAMS
Leadership teams require competencies beyond those listed above. High performing teams set clear and measurable objectives, manage roles and responsibilities, define effective processes to achieve the objectives, and create feedback-rich environments where it’s safe to take risks, debate, be vulnerable, and innovate. High performing teams continuously look for ways to improve the group’s effectiveness, and build esprit de corps through their commitment to each other’s development and success.
WHAT INFORMS OUR LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT APPROACH
Our leadership development team has extensive experience coaching and facilitating leadership programs at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and coaching senior leaders across all industry segments. We share a common, research-based understanding of leadership competencies and team dynamics, as well as the experiential processes that accelerate learning and behavior change.
OUR APPROACH IS INTEGRATED WITH STRATEGY AND CULTURE
Achieving aggressive strategic objectives requires a highly effective leadership team. Our programs and services integrate the organizational culture and leadership values, promote inclusion and diversity, and support strategic objectives.
PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
Our Leadership Development programs get people and teams to high performing states quickly. We design and deliver customized programs that achieve well defined objectives in alignment with the core values, culture, and strengths of the organization. Our programs, services, and methodologies promote a culture of
collaborative leadership that is effective, sustainable, and supportive
of individual styles and differences. Our approach integrates concepts
of leadership, rapport building, emotional intelligence, feedback, and
influence. Rather than impose theoretical concepts of leadership onto
individuals and teams, we work with our clients to identify and refine
existing leadership strengths, values, and challenges. We develop
executives from within the organization, accelerate the integration and
effectiveness of new leaders from outside the organization, and task
leaders at all levels with the development of others.
